Potrero Hill Real Estate Market Overview

Since settling in the 1850s, Potrero Hill residents have soaked up the sun more than most other San Franciscans. The neighborhood's elevation and position on the east side of the city keep it more insulated from the notorious fog. Add to that the reverie-inducing views from its north and south slopes and you've got a neighborhood whose warmth extends to its disposition. Sprung from the heavy industry of its... past, Potrero Hill is now known for its community-oriented, neighborly feel, and city locals consider it laid-back. (Think strollers, flower boxes, and an annual pet parade sponsored by the local coffee shop.)View more
